Since the heatwave our weather has turned unsettled with plenty of showers and rain for the gardens. We’ve kept some of the humidity but temperatures have been pegged back slightly. August can be a funny month, usually delivering quite a bit of rain through downpours and thunderstorms and the outlook is not much different.
Thursday: A lovely day, the calm before the storm you could say. Dry with warm, sunny spells and not a windy as lately. Max 22°C
Friday: An deep area of low pressure, unusual for August, will sweep in from the south-west. Heavy rain early on followed by sunny spells then frequent showers which could be thundery. Becoming windy. Despite the wind and rain it will be muggy. Warning in place for rain. Max 23°C
Weekend: Unsettled and very windy at first.
Saturday: Very windy with 35-40mph gusts with a warning in place. Frequent showers with some of them falling as hail with thunder and lightning. Cooler. Max 19°C
Sunday: Rain at first then becoming drier with sunny spells developing and becoming less windy. Max 18°C
Outlook: It’s hard to find any sign of settled, sunny and warmer conditions. More like Autumn for now with temperatures struggling to reach 20°C.
